Notes/Commercial Description:
For our first new 12-ounce 4-packs in nearly half a decade, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey.

We believe health-conscious beer drinkers and the millions of Americans who suffer from Celiac disease can cut back on gluten while relishing the distinction and drinkability of this very special brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with a slight hint of red. Lots of rising bubbles and a slight off white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Lacing is light.

Smell: A sweet, fruity, and jammy aroma with big hints of strawberry and honey. Upfront scent of strawberries along with some sweet syrup. Pale malt with hints of grains, yeast, and lots of honey. Also some white wine like hints of grapes. Some sweet molasses hints as well. A pretty interesting and nice fruity aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a sweet, fruity, and slightly tart fruit forward taste with lots of strawberry and honey. Upfront taste of sweet strawberries. Also some fruit notes of white grape. Sweet notes of syrup and molasses. Pale malt with notes of grains, yeast, and a big presence of honey. Taste is fruity and sweet but light and smooth while far from cloying.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Sweet and syrupy but light and smooth.

Overall: An interesting and decent take on a fruit beer. Very light but the strawberry taste is nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A- Crystal clear golden/honey colored body with a fizzy white head. Lots of fizzy carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

S- Almost smells like a sweet, fruity soda. Honey, strawberries, lots of sugary-sweet aromas.

T- Soda like sweetness (birch beer?) with strawberries coming through a lot with honey in the finish. The malt backbone you would expect in a beer is not present and it leaves a lingering sweet aftertaste. Kind of weird during the first few sips as that grain bill is just not there.

M- More body than I would have expected, but still somewhat thin and fizzy. Lingering sweetness and fizziness.

O- Being a gluten-free beer, this one is drinkable. Not my favorite mix of flavors, but it's not over-the-top sweet to the point of being undrinkable. Drinks somewhat like a soda, but it's nice to see a noble attempt at a gluten-free offering.
